Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge day 19:
If you had to pick your life song what would it be?
This morning I woke up humming a tune… trying to find the lyrics in my mind… searching deep in my history for how it goes. When I found it I went right to youtube to look for it, Wild World by Cat Stevens and it came out the year before I was born, 1970. And as I hit play he went on to introduce the song and said, “I wrote this before making a second comeback… I think I wrote it about myself…”
“if you wanna leave
take good care
hope you have a lot nice things to wear…
oh baby its a wild world…
I’ll always remember you like a child girl…
I’ve seen what the world can do…
it’s breaking my heart in two…
I hope you make a lot of good friends out there…
just remember there’s’ a lot of bad EVERYwhere…
its hard to get by
just upon a smile
baby I love you
oh baby its a wild world!!!”
These are the words that jumped out at me…
There are messages or us in everything and everyone. For today’s prompt I want you to pick a song, perhaps it came out the year you were born, maybe it’s a song from your childhood… pick a song that really is YOUR song today!
